I'm sure most folks on this forum are already aware of this news. But considering EarthBound was one of the first significant unreleased video game to be leaked to the general public, I figured this deserved a thread on Lost Levels. And unlike the false alarm we had with Donkey Kong Original Edition, this time it actually is an unreleased game being released for real.

I'm curious what prompted Nintendo to suddenly do this. Lots of speculation of Mother 3 is spreading, and I do feel we may finally be getting something regarding that. But I think people are ignoring what is the most significant thing about this. Nintendo actually releasing one of their previously unreleased games for sale to the public. While I doubt we're going to see anything else like this for the time being, it does appear that it is no longer an impossibility that Nintendo will release more unreleased stuff in the future. (Though admittedly its a very small possibility, but still.)

Maybe its time to badger Nintendo that we're very interested in playing Star Fox 2?

The only other game I see getting a potential release is Star Fox 2.
Now that it's been confirmed they have a retail master ROM (at least in Japanese) at Nintendo HQ (I read the developers were able to get the game put through a full official Nintendo bugtest even after its release was canceled).

I asked Dylan Cuthbert, and he said that not only was Star Fox 2 complete, but that he used it as a template for Star Fox Command for the DS.

On the topic of EarthBound, it seems that the Japanese version differs from the known one in that it has some of the censorship applied to the US version and Mother 1+2.

For example, there should be a cigarette in here:

Maybe on StarFox's anniversary we'll get a release of StarFox 2.

This is indeed a great thing. Maybe we'll get all the BS Zeldas? haha.
